Strong Arm Steady, "Classic" - produced by Statik Selektah

Courtesy Dunn Deal PR.

Making its world premiere as the 18th entry in The DJBooth and Event Electronics 20/20 Music Series, this newly-leaked album cut from Strong Arm Steady comes backed by a sampled instrumental that's smooth even by Statik Selektah's lofty standards. Over the Boston heavyweight's dreamy strings and delicate piano chords, Krondon, Mitchy Slick: and Phil Da Agony drop witty, ever-so-slightly blunted rhymes about their skills, their home streets and their witty bars. Those who think Classic lives up to its title can find it, and much more besides, on the crew's StereoType LP, scheduled to drop in December. Look forward to two more 20/20 entries before the month's end.

The idea that the experience is reason enough to search, "The Light Show" is what you get when you put (Four) dreamers and searchers in a room and say “just create what you feel”. Producer KRK! (Instrumental Heaven and Murdered Out Deloreans), Daniel Joseph (Pretty/Ugly), and Jahsyah, along with Steeve Sam, come together to deliver a twist of dreams, visions, and frequencies for the 'high' of free creation and the 'high' of delivering that moment in time to you.
Light Work Studios became an escape for artists usually lost in their minds. Monday nights - and the freedom to do whatever you wanted - created the space for these artists to let it all go, and create what is real music without a little creative freedom. This is more than just a movement for the hip-hop culture. It is the breaking of rules for music overall. Transcending genres and inventing new flows, He Who Shines Truly is set to show a different viewpoint of art. This is all for you, the fans of music, the lovers of art, and the inventors of creating new space.

So as the universe conspires to teach us new paths, He Who Shines Truly will serve as the guiding light to following your own way. They believe that there is a higher place that is unknown to dilemma and doubt. Allow them to take you on a journey. Explore and expand...

Looks like the wild blue yonder just got wilder. On "Iron Eagle", don't expect the sound of Colonel Charles 'Chappy' Sinclair and Doug Masters to break any speed barriers in F-14 Tomcats, but do expect mic veteran El Gant to rip through 16s over J. Blanc's guitar riff-sampled production. For good measure, throw in Sam Kinison vocal snippets for a hook and you got yourself a ditty (yah, he's "dissin'" rappers, but please people, it's the 'iron-y' wherein lies the humor).

Stay tuned for El Gant's forthcoming mixtape Rule By Secrecy which drops next Thursday (12/1), courtesy of the good people at RBS includes guest appearances from Tek, FT, Kool Keith, J57, S-Dub (Shabaam Sahdeeq), Bekay, Deejay Element and more. Producers tapped include Deejay Iron, J. Blanc, The Beatnuts & Kutmasta Kurt among others.

With only one week until the November 30th release of hasHBrown's new album, Break Something, the Houston-based rapper/producer stays busy, giving fans yet another single from the project. In the past weeks, hasH has released the video for "Heaven," not to mention his collaboration with Detroit's Guilty Simpson on the song "Break The Chain," and now, hasH is excited to unveil his latest single, "This Is It," which also features singer Dannie Walker on the chorus.

"The main inspiration was going out on the town and knowing that at this 'one spot' you were going to hear good music, no matter what," explains hasHBrown. "Some venues and events are known for their nightlife party atmosphere but what draws me in to going out to a bar or lounge is if I know that I'm going to hear dope music while I party." And in telling his story, hasH keeps things creative with a feel good track, one that maybe extends a little beyond his core audience, but also one that allows the up-and-coming do-it-all to avoid having his music put into a box.
